This morning Daniel and I agreed that today would be a good day to take a hike. I did a bit of research and found that there were some good trails just outside of Fort Payne, AL in the Little River Canyon and at Desoto State Park. We decided to head to the Little River Falls first and then decide from there what we wanted to do.
The Little River Falls are a 45-foot fall with a pretty good flow over the top. Luckily it was a little overcast and there were not many people there. In the summer I am sure this is a busy place because at the bottom of the falls there is a decent swimming hole.
Daniel and Sophie enjoyed roaming around the top of the falls.
Afterward we decided to drive the scenic route in the canyon instead of hiking. The main reason we didn’t end up doing a real hike was because the arch of my left foot has been bothering me since the half marathon last week.
The canyon was really pretty – we would definitely come back here in the fall to see the leaves change.
On the way to the canyon we drove through Rainsville, AL and the damage from the storms was pretty bad. It made us realize how lucky we were in our area of Alabama.
